Wildlife & Photographic Safaris

“The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa – for he has so much to look forward to.”- Richard Mullin

Africa – A continent of unrivalled beauty and diversity, a continent of rich cultures, majestic mountains, endless space and the most prolific wildlife compliment to be found anywhere on the planet. Africa is a place of wonder, a place of mythical creatures and a place of dreams.

Safari A journey, an expedition, an exploration. Few if any experiences measure up to the excitement of an Africa safari and I do believe that the biggest contributing factors to this deep-felt excitement are the not knowing, the unpredictable and the expectation that anything can happen at any time. Our itineraries are tailored to our clients’ specific wildlife interests, preferred level of accommodation and of course the ideal amount of time spent on safari. We also offer a small selection of scheduled departures for couples of individual travellers wishing to join other folks on a safari.

We offer both photographic and group / family safaris.

Our photo safaris are open to all levels of photographers, from the novice to the professional and focus on both wildlife and people photography. These are always privately guided safaris to ensure our clients are always in the best possible position from which to photograph, receive tutoring out in the field and post processing assistance between activities.

Our family or group safaris put a lot of focus on the understanding of how nature works, the way in which different species interact with each other and of course animal behaviour. On request, we also put focus on the communities and various cultures who live in and around these protected areas. With our group safaris, you are given the option to have it privately guided or not.

We look forward to facilitating your dream safari, whether this is guided or non-guided.
